Mark Ingram explains meaning of ‘Big Truss’
“Big Truss” became the catchphrase surrounding the 2019 Baltimore Ravens, but it left many perplexed about its meaning.
Few people had ever heard of the “Big Truss” term prior to the Ravens’ 41-7 win over the Houston Texans. In his postgame news conference, Mark Ingram hyped up Lamar Jackson and introduced him to the media. He did so saying “Big Truss” a few times.
Here’s the video:
Fast forward to Saturday, and Ingram was interviewed by NFL Network on the red carpet. Ingram was asked by Kyle Brandt about the meaning of Big Truss and offered this explanation.
“Man, it’s like trust, but just two ‘S’s’ — more swaggy. (Lamar Jackson) used to tell me that all the time. Everything we do, we do it big, so I gotta put the ‘big’ on it, ‘big truss.’ And the interview went viral, and now it’s crazy,” Ingram said.
So there you have it — it’s just a swaggy version of big trust.
The love between the two players wasn’t one-sided, either; Lamar gave plenty of love to Ingram too.
